Last month, Mackman’s Paul and Bruce joined May Berkouwer and the team in celebrating 10 years of textile conservation in Sudbury.

May Berkouwer Textile Conservation offers a full range of services. From advice to treatment on a variety of historical textiles, their clients include the National Trust and the V&A Museum. As well as many local and anonymous individuals. Plus, they are aptly based in Sudbury, still a major centre for silk manufacturing.

Having worked with May in 2012/13, our company Director Paul said,

“We were so pleased to be a part of the celebrations, and are so proud of what she has achieved, we hope she is too!”

A bit of background…

Since its early beginnings in 2007, the business, which was founded by May Berkouwer, has worked on a variation of high-profile projects across the UK and Ireland. As a result, the team has grown alongside the success of the business. Recently they helped to restore one of the largest tapestries in the world – Christ in Glory, in Coventry Cathedral. Locally, the team have worked on conserving some of Ickworth House’s historically significant textiles, and supported internships. As well as this, the team actively promote their work at textile fairs and arts festivals.

May’s small but significant business marked the momentous milestone by opening the doors to the public. This allowed for insights into the work that has been done in the studio since 2007 … As well as what’s to come for the next decade!
